Health officials in the nation's largest city are recommending that any residents living with HIV be offered AIDS drugs as soon as the virus is diagnosed, an aggressive move that has been shown to prolong life and stem the spread of the disease.
Dr. Moupali Das, the director of research at the San Francisco Department of Health HIV Prevention Section, said its surveillance data indicated that physicians were treating their HIV patients early even before the city recommended doing so.
She said the average amount of time from diagnosis to having no virus in the blood went from 32 months in 2004 to eight months in 2008.
